Rosemarie Trockel
May 27 – October 26, 2002 | Goetz Collection

Art, fine art, is just as much a question of aesthetics as it is a question of freedom. Rosemarie Trockel's work is above all an intensive plea for this freedom.
Ingvild Goetz

Rosemarie Trockel became known for her pictures of stove burners and her knitted images. Her choice of materials is a conscious nod to the traditional female role in the home environment. Trockel does not knit her images herself, but has them knitted by a knitting computer based on her designs. She often weaves in political symbols, brand-name articles and trademarks. This procedure raises questions about the socio-political position of art and the role of the artist.

Rosemarie Trockel's extensive and many-sided oeuvre, which includes objects, images, installations and videos as well as many drawings, is one of Sammlung Goetz's main focuses. This solo exhibition will present over 80 works created over the past 25 years. The presentation and selection of the works developed in close cooperation with the artist.

Her most recent work, which was just completed for this exhibition, is the video film Manus Spleen IV, 2002. It is part of a cycle of short video projections about a young woman named Manu. In Manus Spleen IV, she takes on the role of Mutter Courage. A double of Brigitte Bardot makes an appearance as a supporting actress. In various works, Trockel has subjected actresses and fashion icons of the 1960s to closer examination. From this work complex, Sammlung Goetz shows a display cabinet work Ohne Titel, 1993, the video Fan 1-6, 2000 and a series of drawings.

Rosemarie Trockel (born in 1952 in Schwerte, D, lives and works in Cologne, D).
